Perspective Challenge to Implement an Adaptive Port Planning (APP): Taking Casablanca Port as an Example

Mohamed Azizi


The study have proposed Adaptive Port Planning (APP) to be implemented in Casablanca Port according to regulate manner operation with a framework, an approach that bridges the gaps in the traditional practices of port planning by incorporating uncertainty and flexibility considerations. It provides a framework for the planner to generate plausible alternatives in the context of this planning objectives and definition of success; identify critical uncertainties (vulnerabilities and opportunities); and then, to explore, value, and incorporate flexibilities for handling these uncertainties. Then, actions can be taken either in the planning stage, or actions can be prepared in advance, and taken as events occur. Next, the planner evaluates the alternatives and makes a choice; the value of flexibility is included in his evaluation. During the implementation phase, actions are taken in response to triggers from a monitoring system set up for the selected alternative (which monitors the external environment for new developments and alerts planners of the need to modify or reassess the plan).
